Gorgeous

Came down for one of the 3 or 4 camping / golf trips that I do annually. As always, the course was in great shape and absolutely beautiful. The staff at the clubhouse is always very friendly and act like they are glad to see you. If they would speed the greens up a little, I would rate it 6 stars out of 5. This is a BEAUTIFUL place. The campground is very nice as well.

Extremely well kept!!

The fairways and greens are very well kept almost as if they were artificial grass! 1st and 2nd rough were in great shape! I might have seen maybe 3 sand traps that were under construction at the time, with the rest of the traps looking great with actual white sands contrasting the bright green well kept grasses. Seen a ton of wildlife, 12 deer and a turkey. Played chicken with a buck on 16 ... he won! Just a stunning mountain course with friendly staff great service and great prices! I’ll be back whenever I’m in town!

going to keep getting better

the course was in great shape considering they punch the greens the fairway and rough was mowed good they are working on repairing the bunkers they redid a lot but still got several to do only can redo as many as the state allowed them so as soon as the greens heal up should be in super shape keep up the good work

Great Cource. But some players lack golf courtesy

First 9 was great. Fast pace only ones on front side. Got to tee box on 10 and find a foursome in fairway and a foursome at the tee. Not sure where the came from. Think they hAd to have started on 10. Never allowed us to pass. We waited on every shot. What a bunch of knuckleheads.

Always worth the 2 hour plus Drive to play here!

We love this Course, if it were not so far away we would play it alot! Sometimes we take are RV to the RV park located very close to the Golf Course and play 2 to 3 times while we are Camping. The course has always been well maintained and is Challenging with some beautiful scenic holes, always see a deer or two and most of the times Turkey. If you have never played here you need to give it a go!

Golf Trip

Course was nice, somewhat challenging, with hilly fairways and greens. The course was in tip top shape and plays very well. Staff was awesome and views are great. I will definitely play here again.

Beautiful Course

WOW! Beautiful course that was in excellent condition. Well worth the 2 hour drive from home. There was a lot of rain on previous days , but course drains well and we were able to do 90 degrees. Challenging but fair. Wider fairways and greens that were receptive to most shots. Greens rolled true and were a little tricky to read. Staff was very friendly and allowed me to play even though I was very early for tee time. A great day of golf and I would highly recommend to anyone to go play this course. I will be back!!

Course was in great shape. The bunkers are not in the best of shape that was the only reason it’s not a five star

Always a great time playing with a lot of challenging holes

We drive 2 hours to play this course. Love the layout and the challenges it has to offer. Course was in good condition and nice to see they are working to improve the bunkers! Look forward to playing it more this Summer!
